Well, it's been almost a week and dove soap is not what it used to be. I don't know what is changed in the last two years, but I seem to react to it over a very short time. It appears to be very drying and irritating.
there's also the issue with the water in my apartment. It's not good, and I need something that's going to combat that. I've settled on Spectro jel because I was informed by a pharmacist (I know, not a dermatologist but somebody with some knowledge of chemistry) that spectro has ingredients that help combat the harshness of hard water and Chelate minerals from the skin. I won't be using the kind for blemish prone skin because I don't have acne. I will using the one for combination skin, in conjunction with the Toleraine fluid and we'll see how that goes.
